2nd Meatball Recipe : MEATBALLS W/ SWEET & SOUR SAUCE

For this recipe, we’ll use the second portion that we have set aside in the freezer. Thaw it if it’s still frozen, and form again into balls. Once ready, fry them in medium heat till a bit brown and well cooked. Don’t over fry them or they will turn our dry and loose its juices. Set aside, we’ll use them later.

Ingredients for the Sweet & Sour Sauce:
2 medium, Onion, sliced in chuncks
2 medium, Tomatoes, sliced
1 medium, Green Bellpepper, sliced
1 medium, Carrot, sliced
2 tbsps Cooking Oil
1 cup water
4-6 tbsps. Banana Catsup
2 tbsps. Vinegar
½ cup Brown sugar
Salt & Pepper to taste
¼ cup Cornstarch dissolved in 2 tbsp water

In a saucepan, sauté onion, and tomatoes, then add carrots cook for a few minutes, them add the bellpepper. Saute them for awhile, then set aside in another container. In the same saucepan, put the water, banana catsup, vinegar, brown sugar, salt (about a pinch) and pepper. Mix well and bring to a simmer over low fire, taste if it needs more sugar and salt. Then thicken with cornstarch dissolved in water and gently simmer again. Lastly, put back the stir fried vegetables into the sauce, and when ready to serve, add sauce into the fried meatballs. Enjoy!
